    I just see the Xbox as a huge expense. My friend got one, then had to buy live, and then had to buy a hard-drive. There's only a select amount of games that I would want to play that are exclusive to Xbox (why I think PS3's exclusives are better).

    It just seems kind of stupid to me, but if I had the money for both I would totally buy a 360.

    Seeing that this article is form 2010, I am glad I had picked a PS3 over the 360. Plus I still know more Japanese with a Wii then Xbox.

    I have both and I still prefer my PS3. The problem with 360 is that it requires you to have a lot of $$ to buy things for it like the wireless adapter & LIVE.

    breaking news the sky is blue.

    too bad the PS3 Sucks in memory thus can't do as well as 360 without some retarded juggling of game code.

    Another problem with the Xbox is how fragile it is. Honestly it is insane. I just sold mine today after it had broken 3 of my games while I was just plugging in my mic. (One being the brand new never played Blops2) The slightest movement while it is on, and the disk gets all torn up. I got drop it from a foot off the ground and it would probably snap in half.

    Because obviously the Wii can do as powerful as PS3 and 360.

    Right?

    alot of game devs complain about the memory.

    you ever wonder why PS3 Skyrim doesn't have DLC yet?

    The PS3 Can't even handle Transparent textures Properly.

    This was one of the main causes why 360 is still the dominant platform to develop on, then ported to the PS3/PC.

    Haven't given it any thought, nor do I care about Skyrim DLC.


    Can you explain to me why LA Noire needed 2 discs to run on the 360, and why Rockstar said themselves that they liked the PS3 better for making games? I would like to know.

    simple, Blu-ray Disc.


    Rockstar makes gigantic games obviously. Thats why they like the blu-ray, they are able to store more game.

    The shitty side about Blu-ray though is that it's disc speed is terrible when it first came out (aka when the ps3 came out, note that the PS3 is the main reason blu-ray is alive today), Thats why PS3 Installs exist. Otherwise you would be seeing 30 second long loading times. Hell even blu-ray movies have loading screens.

    i don't even have to read the article to know this. Ive went through several 360s and a few ps3s. Overall, there's nothing exclusive wise that gets me back to 360. Dont care for halo or gears of war.

    Also, I read somewhere (sorry no link) that Sony is letting Microsoft use their blue ray for next gen xbox. Stupid idea in my opinion, that's one of the main things that separates the two. But, it is what it is

    fun fact: Sony doesn't own blu-ray.

    Blu-ray Disc Association - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    everyone here does:

    Apple Inc.
    Dell Inc.
    Hewlett-Packard
    Hitachi, Ltd.
    Intel Corporation
    LG Electronics
    Mitsubishi Electric
    Panasonic Corporation
    Pioneer Corporation
    Royal Philips Electronics
    Samsung Electronics
    Sharp Corporation
    Sony Corporation
    Sun Microsystems
    TDK Corporation
    Technicolor SA
    20th Century Fox
    Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group
    Warner Bros. Entertainment

    sony is just the main cause for Blu-ray Adoption.
